Hey All, I want to share my workshop, Astrology and Storytelling, with this community. The course will be using astrology as a system of abstraction relevant to big data and as postmodern as contemporary physics. It is formally a writing course but we will be talking about economies of spirit and belief and diasporic subjectivities. I would love to have some voices from this community if anyone is interested in registering.
DESCRIPTION A 101 course on astrology including: a history of astrology, how astrological meanings are generated, interpreting planets in signs, houses and relocation, aspects and shapes, the moving planets, and fixed stars and critical points. This astrology course responds to the huge body of work white astrologers have produced by describing the zodiac as the western matrix of control and the interpretation of a person's chart as that individual's participation and resistance in said matrix. The purpose of this workshop is to use astrological methods of telling time to innovate story telling. *The seven week course will include the following topics:* History of Astrology: Appropriation, and Reflection Intergenerational Trauma and how Meaning is Formed Planets in Signs: People in Places Houses and Relocation: Themes of Immigration Formation: Aspects, Shapes, Relationships, and Community Fixed Stars and Recurring Themes The Moving Sky: Change and Development Email newwomensp...@gmail.com to register or alice.lan.y...@gmail.com for more information about the program :) Yours -- Alice www.alicesparklykat.com
